Good, but I'm surprised at how highly regarded this movie is.

I must say I didn't find it fantastic.
It starts and ends with some poetry, but the story is rather slow and lacks great moments.
Worth seeing for the unusual way of filming and the "La Bohème" characters.

Quite romantic in a gruff sort of way. Very enjoyable.

If I consider that the movie is 90 years old maybe I should be more generous with it, but honestly speaking I found it boring. 5/10.

There is the notion of the French New Wave in Jean Vigo's L'Atalante, even if it came out decades before the movement - it just feels more modern than most of the 1930s' output. In the film, Juliette marries a river bargeman (Jean) to get away from her small town, but she soon discovers that one can be on the move and sitting still at the same time. Longing to see the sights, she's more or less trapped between the house(boat)work, the doddering old first mate (one of Michel Simon's signature performances, most memorable) and his dozen cats, and her husband's misplaced jealousies. And yet, it's also a passionate, realistic romance with a sliver of eroticism. The barge setting merely heightens the newlywed feeling of suddenly having to share one's space, make concessions, and discover the less enchanting side of one's partner. There's an improvisational style in Vigo that sometimes allows flubs, sometimes creates interest, definitely a sense of just trying to get it done that translates as energy. And though there are moments in the first Act, he keeps his best cinematography for the last, in my opinion, providing French cinema with some of its indelible images.

Jean Vigo's fourth & final (but first feature-length) film. I suppose its his best work but I found it quite dull... 5/10
